The owner's manual should cover that, and if you don't have yours, you can download it here:

If it doesn't cover it, you may have to contact Whirlpool for the installation instructions: http://maytag.com/support/contact_us.jsp

Is there a piece I can install on the bottom of my over-the-range microwave that will help keep the front of the microwave from being covered in steam when cooking on my stovetop?


Every over the range microwave has a vent on it that should be venting that steam. I don't know of anything you could put under there that would solve your problem as that is where then vents are and they would be blocked. It sounds to me as though your steam is not being vented properly, and this could also happen if the steam is being vented back into the room instead of outside as many OTR microwaves allow you to do. Its a little bit of work to vent it outside but I myself did that with my microwave and have never had a steam accumulation problem.

Why double filter on Maytag Microwave


If your range hood or microwave recirculates back in to the room.

Both filters are required. The mesh filter catches the grease & air particulate. The carbon filter should be changed regularly www.HoodFilterFactory.com ( avoid range fires that spread quickly) & clears the recirculated air from smoke,odors, & airborne particulate.

With yours venting to the outside, you ONLY need the mesh filter. These filters should be cleaned regularly ( Avoid mentioned hazard) & should be replaced when you can no longer clean them enough to see through them when holding up to the light.

Good Luck

Most Microwaves arrive ready to vent back into the room. For filtered air returned to the room it should face toward the front. For top vent, point to the top. for rear wall vent point toward the back.

I dont have a vent for above range microwave oven


It doesn't have to vent outside. These are designed to recirculate the filtered air back into the room. If you cook without a range hood now it will work fine for you.

Recirculating over the range micro does not take care of steam


Mayny reason. Does it vent outside? If not you are not getting a great amount of air flow. Are you filters clean? Dirty filters will stop max air movement. These are not the best machines for moving air but they sure are great spacemakers. Not sure if this can be fixed by any means other than a true vent hood.

Exhaust fan


The fan pulls from the range top and either out those vents on top unless there is a vent in your upper cupboard. Then it is vented outside. Hope this helps.
